The paper presents an industrial application of CFD for calculation of Wave-In-Deck load due to an extreme wave.

Particular attention is given to flow kinematics initialization that is necessary to start up a CFD simulation. The applied CFD code, ComFLOW, is a Navier-Stokes equation solver with an improved Volume of Fluid (iVOF) method employed to displace and re-construct fluids free surface.

For incoming waves high enough for a negative air-gap and therefore with Wave-In-Deck loads, a jacket platform was tested in model basin, for both regular and irregular wave cases. One of goals of these model tests was verification of CFD codes. The experimental and computational models of the structure are exactly the same. In the paper, the measured Wave-In-Deck forces are compared with CFD results.
